Why St. Louis For Your Business

Why St. Louis For You


“Arch Grants rocks. First, the people are incredibly kind and supportive, and while the check is great, we’ve found the hiring network to be particularly impactful. Getting the right people in the door is what makes or breaks a business, and Arch Grants has helped us widen our talent pool substantially.” -Chris Kontes, Balto, 2018 Arch Grants Recipient

“Arch Grants has and continues to provide incredible resources. The introductions that it has made, the strategic legal, accounting and fundraising support, the access to local resources, invitations to networking events (to name a few things) are invaluable. The organization itself is a banner of excellence. The success of the program and the yearly Gala speaks for itself. Their encouragement and support does not stop at the business; they work to support the individuals as well.” -Barbara Pozzi, Digital Medical Arts, 2018 Arch Grants Recipient

“Arch Grants has fed both the heart and the mind – two key things every early-stage entrepreneur needs to grow. It has not only provided me with a close-knit community of smart people always ready to lend a hand (the heart) but also resources, human and financial capital, to propel me to the next level (the mind). Arch Grants is and will always be a critical milestone in our journey.” – Yulkendy Valdez, Forefront Cultures, 2018 Arch Grants Recipient

“Arch Grants has been very impactful for SpenDebt. In this stage of our company, Arch Grants have been a true partner in enabling us to execute which is most important! More so than the capital received, they have provided access to their network, the entrepreneur community, and to the St. Louis region and beyond. Having access has been a game changer in many ways.” – Kiley Summers, SpenDebt, 2018 Arch Grants Recipient
